Police informant Terence Bakewell dies in the Fosdick ward of the Cowley general hospital under Morse's guard, in the same bed where three patients have died over the past five weeks, one of whose wife was in dispute with the hospital and is also found dead. All had been operated on by ageing surgeon Sir Merlyn Chubb and a view on the ward is that his ineptitude is responsible but Morse is puzzled to learn that in each case white lilies had been placed beside the deceased and then pathologist Max discovers puncture wounds in the bodies. A charismatic doctor falls under suspicion until Morse uncovers an incident in his past and a bereaved relative out for revenge. He also locates the missing Joan Thursday who wants her whereabouts kept from her parents. Written by don @ minifie-1

Good Story but Depends on Some Pretty Contrived Efforts
30 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

This episode revolves around events in a hospital. A particular bed, bed number ten, is where numerous patients have died in a relatively short period of time. Meanwhile the Chief Superintendent is admitted with a serious condition caused by an ulcer. There is also a man who is being kept as a key witness against organized criminals, portrayed in a previous episode. But it's the goings on at the hospital among doctors and nurses that are at the center of the main plot. Other peripheral things are that Morse makes an interesting visit and encounters the snobbish, ill tempered mother of his former fiancee. The series seems to be getting darker all the time.
